Analytical Results for a Small Multiple-Layer Parking System
In this article a multilayer parking system of size n = 3 is studied. We prove that the asymptotic limit of the particle density in the center approaches a maximum of 1/2 in higher layers. This means a significant increase of capacity compared to the first layer where this value is 1/3. This is remarkable because the process is solely driven by randomness. We conjecture that this result applies to all finite parking systems with n ≥ 2.
